GREE, Ubisoft and PlayNext have announced Assassin’s Creed Memories, an upcoming iOS title that will blend “card battle, RPG and strategy elements.” In the game, existing fans and newcomers to the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be introduced to Abstergo Entertainment’s mobile Animus, as they travel throughout history recruiting famous allies for their team.
Assassin’s Creed Memories will take players to multiple time periods, including Renaissance Italy and Colonial-era US. The game will feature both single-player and multiplayer combat, including support for battles of up to 20-on-20 real gamers. Throughout the game, users will be given options to customize their deck and team, which are determined by “the kind of Assassin they want to be.”
“The card battle genre has been hugely popular around the world and GREE and PlayNext have demonstrated their know-how and expertise on such games. With such expertise, we really believe they’re bringing a great new way to enjoy the richness of [the] Assassin’s Creed universe to mobile players,” says Jean Michel Detoc, managing director of Ubisoft’s Mobile Division.
Assassin’s Creed Memories will launch worldwide as a free-to-play title later this Summer. Check back soon for more.
